Special Events/ Calendar Updates

In January three people helped paint our bookshelves in what is now our library.   Thank you Jeanie, Debbie and Joyce.  If you haven’t  had a chance to see the room, stop in and take a look.  Alice and Betty moved lots of books to the selves.  Great job!

Just a reminder that our dues are due.  You can pay $40 for the year or $20 for six months.

Please look at our tree in the lobby.  It now has valentines made by students from Fort Stevens.  This tree will be changing throughout the year.  Thank you students!!!

David discussed the problems with our vans.  We will put the oldest van up for sale.  The money would then be used to make repairs on our newest van.

Look for our new signs for our updated first aid kit.  Thanks Sid.  We are hoping to set up a first aid training with emphasis on using the defibrillator.  Watch for more details.
Our volunteer van driver situation is critical.!!!  Yelm has seniors who are homebound.  Our van brings them to our center for activities and lunch. Please help us provide this service. Call the center if you can help.  

Do you have an activity you would like to see at the center?  Let us know and we will try to include it.  

Everyone had so much fun playing Tripoli  at our party we  decided to have game day Friday mornings before produce.  Come early and join us.
